e107 help needed
I am a newbie

 11:49 am on Feb 18, 2007 (gmt 0)

My web host offers this script as one of its easy aps, a collection of stuff you just click to install.

And that's where it stops being easy. For me. But I want to learn how to do this. For starters, I am just trying to change things like the default image for the news page. I know that I ~could~ just upload a different image, delete the old one, and rename the new image with the old image's filename. I ~could~ do that. But...I would much rather learn how to change the look of the overall layout, add links, etc.

Remember, I am a lifelong FrontPage user. I know next to nothing. The boat that left for Web 2.0 is a long swim from where I am...

Hi there,

Welcome to WebmasterWorld. I have edited your post to make sure that there are no specifics in the dicussion.

Also, I was unable to connect to your site. Send me a stickymail once you've corrected the problems on your site and I'll be happy to help you reword / find some answers.

Though I haven't installed e107 via "easyapps", I'm sure you can download the "e107_themes" directory from where it resides on your server. You can then duplicate one of the existing theme folders and rename it; Then it's a matter of swapping out images, stylesheets, etc.

Once you upload your theme it should be available for selection in the theme menu. As with many CMSs, you may have to hunt down plugins and includes to tweak it.

OK. I will try that.
